Prudence biography
PRUDENCE was one the most important bands on the Norwegian prog scene in the '70's, which included the likes of AUNT MARY, JUNIPHER GREENE, TITANIC, POPOL VUH (ACE), RUPHUS, FOLQUE and HØST. They fused rock with old party/dance music from Trøndelag and (on their last album) sang in their local dialect, and thereby created a rock style dubbed Trønderrock.

Hailing from Namsos, a small town in Nord-Trøndelag county in Middle Norway, their roots can be traced back to 1967 and the band THE TUNES, later named WHOOPEE CHOOP. At the time the band consisted of Kaare SKEVIK jr. (drums), Per Erik "Prikken" WALLUM (vocals and, later, also flute), Sturla HUSTAD (keyboards), Per FORMO, Hans Jacob BUSCH (both guitar) and Terje TYSLAND (bass), who left to work as a sailor and was replaced by Kjell Ove "Nille" RISETH (bass) shortly before Åge ALEKSANDERSEN (vocals and guitar) joined in October of 1968.

BUSCH left the band in the summer of 1969. The following fall the band changed it's name again, this time to PRUDENCE, after the THE BEATLES track "Dear Prudence", and shortly after they agreed to be the tour band of Stein Ingebrigtsen, a local hero from Namsos and up and coming popstar, a role they would hold up for some time thereafter. More member changes followed in the spring of 1970. HUSTAD left first, followed by FORMO, who was replaced by Jan Erik MOE (guitar).

In 1970 they released their first of three singles on the newly started label, Experience Records. Side A was a cover of DEEP PUPLE's "Into the Fire", while side B was their own composition, "Kom, bli med til København" (Come with to Copenhagen), a song about having fun with drugs in the Danish capital, which was banned from radio airplay.

William HAKKVÅG (guitar and vocals) replaced MOE in October 1970, but left the band in March the following year. A month later the band was joined by Johan TANGEN (mandolin and congas). This came on the heels of Terje TYSLAND (now on guitar, accordion and vocals, later also piano) rejoining after returning from time at sea. Both would prove to be important to the band's development of their own sound, a crossbreed of progressive rock and the sound of the Norwegian countryside.

PRUDENCE's sound was created from three equal approaches. ALEKSANDERSEN mostly listened to Bob DYLAN and American rock, TYSLAND had a strong relationship with jazz, gammaldans and the music of Jimi HENDRIX, while WALLUM was obsessed with JETHRO TULL and British folkro...

Review by apps79
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

3 stars From Namsos, Norway, hailed this interesting Folk Rock band, named after The Beatles song "Dear Prudence", formed in 1969 (actually they were renamed from Whoopee Choop) and featuring two future stars of Norwegian music, guitarist Åge Aleksandersen and multi- instrumentalist Terje Tysland.They were supported by bassist Kjell Ove Riseth, drummer Kaare Skavik Jr., mandolin/guitar player Johan Tangen and singer/multi-instrumentalist Per Erik Wallum.They recorded their debut ''Tomorrow May Be Vanished'' at Rosenborg Studios in August 1972 and the album was released the same year on Polydor.

With the choice of singing in English Prudence actually brought to surface all of their influences, which had been BOB DYLAN, THE BEATLES, JETHRO TULL with also some touches of STRAWBS.The album is filled with short and fiery Folk rockers with strong guitar moves by Aleksandersen, a powerful rhythm section but also a fair amount of traditional instruments in heavy use.Lots of driving flutes in the style of IAN ANDERSON performed by singer Per Erik Wallum, rural soundscapes produced by the harmonica of the same man and also some great mandolin passages by Johan Tangen, who even battles with the flutes and electric guitars in a frenetic mood.There are also a couple of tracks closer to Psychedelic Folk with a more smooth but not less intense sound.The approach is overall nice and rich with a very JETHRO TULL-like atmosphere and the mix of the hard rockin' guitars with the solos provided by the traditional instrumentation sounds very attractive.

Decent and well-executed Folk Rock with a great balance between the folk elements and the rockin' riffs.Warmly recommended.
